March 22, 2020 - I just spoke with relatives in Kalifornia who were sick of being shut up inside Gulag Kalifornia with nothing to buy at the stores, so they decided to seek out a restaurant that actually allowed willing customers to enjoy their food inside the establishment.

V for Vendetta speech

Submitted by Freedomman on Thu, 03/26/2020 - 00:33

This spectacular and riveting speech given by the main character in V for Vendetta is a stark reminder of the times in which we all live. Are you one of those who will just go on with your sad, pointless, existence, subject to the controls of others (your government, for example), or will you stand and be heard; let your passion and commitment to freedom represent a dawning of a genuine new age of humankind; one in which the people are the rulers and what governments exist are their public servants? Now is the time to stand! Revolution Now!

Commentary: Freedom in a time of madness

“The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times and under all circumstances.” - Ex parte Milligan, U.S. Supreme Court (1866)

March 19, 2020 - During the Civil War, when President Abraham Lincoln thought it expedient to silence those in the northern states who challenged his wartime decisions by incarcerating them in military prisons in the name of public safety, he was rebuked by a unanimous Supreme Court. The essence of the rebuke is that no matter the state of difficulties - whether war or pestilence - the Constitution protects our natural rights, and its provisions are to be upheld when they pinch as well as when they comfort.

This basic principle of Amerikan law - that our rights can only be interfered with by means of due process - is being put to a severe test today in most Amerikan states.

March 18, 2020 - Please forgive what may appear as fatalistic to some. It is quite the opposite. Fatalism would be the belief that all events are predetermined and therefore inevitable. No events are predetermined as far as I can tell. Free will is everywhere.

Humans tend to be imperfect. To date I’ve yet to meet a perfect human. The better I know a person, the more flawed I realize he or she is. Which is okay.

What is not okay is putting so much power in the hands of someone so flawed.

30 years ago my country declared independence

A testament to freedom.

By Zilvinas Salenas

March 11, 2020 - Thirty years ago, on March 11, 1990, Lithuania unilaterally declared independence from the Soviet Union. More precisely, it declared that the Soviet occupation of Lithuania, enabled by secret agreements between the Soviets and Nazi Germany, was unlawful, and restored the independent Lithuania of 1918. Latvia and Estonia soon followed.

This set off a chain of events that, together with the Fall of the Berlin Wall (1989) and an attempted military coup in Russia (August 1991), led to the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

Just like that, the evil empire was no more.

Calls mayor's mandate unconstitutional.

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (PNN) - March 15, 2020 - The owner of Kid Rock's Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N' Roll Steakhouse in Nashville said he is refusing to follow Mayor John Cooper's plan to shut down all bars in the city’s tourist hot-spot Lower Broadway during the coronavirus scare.

The Tennessee Department of Health reported 39 cases of coronavirus in the state, with 17 in Davidson County.

Commentary: Get rid of the safety net

March 9, 2020 - Central to the idea of a welfare state is the notion of the “safety net”. The idea is that a free society is much like walking the high wire. High wire walkers sometimes fall, hit the ground, and die, but not if they have a safety net. If they fall, they fall into the safety net and live another day.

The free society, it is said, operates much the same way. People fall on hard times, are unable to pay their bills, and die of starvation. A welfare-state safety net, it is argued, ensures that they survive and live another day.

However, the safety-net argument is fallacious, both from a moral standpoint and a practical standpoint.

EVROS, Greece (PNN) - March 7, 2020 - The farmers and pensioners wore black clothes and heavy boots, imitating Greece’s special forces, and trod along a rural road on a night patrol looking for migrants trying to cross the northern land border with Turkey. “We’ll get you next time!” they shouted at a small group of men who had made it over and fled.
